Inklusion
Being deprived of natural environments, children do not receive new stimuli.

The number of children who are disoriented, lost and uncomfortable when in contact with outdoor spaces, fields, and trees is higher and higher. The name is NatureDeficitDisorder (NND), a real syndrome that would affect especially children. Its causes include losing contact with nature, animals and plants, spending most of time in indoor spaces and cities and growing up with overly cautious parents who tend to control and protect their children from outdoor dangers.

Theorised by American educator Richard Louv in his book Last Child in the Woods (2005), this disorder has not been included in mental health medical manuals yet, such as ICD-10 or DSM-IV. However, it would cause a series of behavioural and psychic problems. «Alienation from nature» would result not only in the well-known physical risks relating to sedentary lifestyle, including diabetes and obesity, but also in mood and attention difficulties, hyperactivity, insecurity, stress, anxiety, slower cognitive development and socialization difficulties.
